So when searching for a tag, your wrapper script would have to traverse
ALL branches, and somehow figure out how to chose between duplicates?
How would it even know where to look for these branches? Would this need
to be configurable to support different repository layouts? Also, this
would preclude you from cleaning up branches you no longer need to get
rid of some clutter, unless you don't care about losing visibility over
the associated tags as well.

Cheers
